Brown’s record-breaking nose-picking

I’ve just noticed that my (infamous) video of Gordon Brown picking his nose has now been viewed over half a million times – 581,610 times to be precise – on YouTube alone. That’s on top of it’s appearance on Newsnight, and pretty much everywhere in 2007. It’s had 2,584 comments – more than the rest of the site put together.

It’s quite clearly the most successful thing ever to come from this site: A video of someone picking their nose. Crazy!

It’s my original edit of the standard Parliamentary feed, so I guess that makes it my video…
